Clone GTI 2106 Leaking after shooting

I recently purchased a clone GTI from yourpbfriend and everything works great except that the gun will leak after a short rope. It doesnt leak after one or two shots a second, but as soon as i hit ramp, it starts to leak from somewhere near the eye cover. Maybe a half inch back. The thing is, i can stop the leak completely if i push the drive cover forward. there also seems to be a gap in between the driver cover and the body after a rope. The gun does not leak if i dry fire it, no matter how much i shoot it. only once i load up a hopper and rip a rope.

I've replaced the bolt tip oring, the bolt switch oring, the valve orings, the power tube tip oring, powertube mid oring, the powertube cap inside oring and the drive cap outside oring. the gun is running at 116 psi normally and i have a regular ninja tank with two shims taken out which makes it run at about 500 psi. please help, this gun is amazing and i dont want to ship it back if i dont have to.

If you are hearing venting out of the noid area check these orings.
up inside the reg after you pull all regulator internals out there will be a 3/16 headed screw up in the reg body. Remove that screw there is an oring that should be on this screw. The oring size is a 4x1mm
and will cause a vemting or small his between the frame at the solenoid area.

Also change the 012 oring on regulator piston as this could not be sealing and causing higher recharge pressure during the streem.

Did you say you have a gap between the body and the drive cover after shooting? Is this what you are talking about?

also make sure you have the drive completely screwed together.
Here is a chart to help you out.

yes that will spread open a bit only after shooting a rope and then the gun will leak from somewhere around the eyes. If i push the drive cover in it gets rid of the gap and stops the leak. Ill try what shhotnpoo said. Honestly i just taped the drive cover down and it worked great.

your pullpin assembly must be worn in the backcap.

Sounds like the drive assembly isnt tight or something isnt put together correctly if your cap is vibrating loose.

Is there not a spot to tighten the drivecap down? When my cap rattles a little or feels loose, usually turning this screw in helps. I have tried removing this screw in the past and it does not seem to want to come out, however, turning it in (clockwise) seems to tighten the drivecover/backlatch.




Is the drivecover popping upwards or is the entire drive sliding backwards/ out of the body?

The bolt would have to cycle with A LOT of force to push the drive out of the gun, enough to wear that pin down. My pin has zero wear on it.

no its moving backwards, less then an eighth of an inch. and then it starts leaking.

I wonder if that pin is securing its self properly. Does the backcap wiggle/ have any play when its in the locked position? Have you tried tightening that pin in the picture above?

I am looking at my GT and the drive has very little backwards play when its secured. Almost unnoticeable if you were to push the bolt backwards. 1/8th inch is huge (i know you said less than 1/8).. even 1/16th is more play than I get

In the drive cap you should have 3 items that will help secure the cap down under pressure.
Cap detent
detent spring
cap wheel.

Are these three things there?

yes they are, and i just ordered some new ones just in case they are the problem. Disassembled and reassembled the gun so i know its not put together incorrectly. there is quite a bit of play in the pullpin/back cap and i have tightened it down. Once i get the pullpin assembly i see how it works out.
